A continental breakfast of fresh bread and rolls, local cheeses and jams, fruit, tea and coffee is included: but, if you're up for a hearty Irish breakfast, I can whip one up for you too.
There are plenty of things to do and see within a few kms of our place; such as, Irish trad music, local pubs, beautiful beaches and landscapes for painting and photographing, swimming, surfing, diving, fishing, horseback riding and hill walking. And of course Fungi, the dolphin! Its also worth mentioning that if you're into golf, The Dingle Golf Links Course is just 4kms down the road.
And, after a day full of actiivities, you can have an Ayurvedic massage to relax and unwind.

Interaction with Guests
Stephen and I are very social and we love meeting people from all over the world. We let our guests be at ease with how much they want to socialize with us. If a guest wants to do their own thing and only have a few passing words, that's fine. If a guest wants to sit in our sitting room by the fire and have a good conversation, that's fine too. Either way, Stephen and I are always here to answer questions and make sure everything is ok.

Linda and Steve are lovely warm and interesting people. We immediately felt at home the minute we walked through the door on our first day. Breakfasts were fresh delicious food with lots of fresh fruit. AND best of all if you opt for a massage you will have a very special treat. After exhausting driving tension Linda's massage was absolutely fantastic. Really restorative. Billie the dog was delightfully playful and interactive. A five star stay!!
Linda and Stephen were both very welcoming on my arrival. The room was extremely clean and well presented and having my own ensuite was a bonus!! Lots of fun and instructions on how to find the house were very clear.
Breakfast was awesome each day and the travel advice was very useful.
Linda and Stephen gave us a warm welcome and seemed to enjoy chatting about almost everything. Stephen's knowledge of local history/archaeology was appreciated, as were their tips on the best pub food locally. The bungalow is homely and comfortable, the location inspirational. Breakfasts were well prepared and generous. We had a relaxing stay and would happily have stayed longer. In short, Airbnb at its best.
Lovely and warm place to stay -with a lot of things to do there.
The house of linda and stephen is a place where you can be as you are and feel very secure. It was a great time with them . They are very talentated and i loved it to chat with them. I'd highly recommend the Massage from linda!
By the way, without a car, it was great to go hiking near by belliferriter up to a Mountain. You have a nice view to the famous Blasket Islands.
Thank you Linda and Stephen for the brilliant breakfast and anything else. (E.g. great sleeping comfort )
Linda has a clean, bright home just a few miles outside Dingle on the Slea head circuit that is convenient to several historic sites and smaller villages with atmospheric pubs. She is a very outgoing host with many helpful suggestions for exploring the area. Breakfast was great.
Beautiful location on Slea Head Drive. We were treated to a nice breakfast and Linda's husband helped us with our travel plans. Good value for location.
Linda gave us a great welcome and was very informative and friendly to us throughout our stay. Her breakfast was delicious and the house was ideally located for our trip to the Blasket Islands. We were disappointed however that the room was damp and had some black damp stains on the blinds and we did not feel like our en-suite bathroom was properly cleaned. I mentioned this to Linda however and she assured me she would sort it out for future guests
